We are BACK at home on Peck Slip!!

Our Story


After two decades living in the South Street Seaport, Amanda Zink knew she wanted to give back to her community. Inspired by her beloved Great Dane, Tyras she opened “The Salty Paw”, the Seaport’s first Pet Emporium & Groom Spa. The shop quickly became recognized as a neighborhood hangout and awarded top groom shop in NYC.

On October 29th 2012, in a matter of minutes, all that changed forever. Super Storm Sandy slammed into Lower Manhattan filling the cobblestone streets with 11 feet of seawater, destroying everything in its path, including The Salty Paw and hundreds of other businesses and homes.

It has been a long road to recovery for all of the businesses and residents surrounding the South Street Seaport. We are excited to be MOVING BACK INTO PECK SLIP late September. Sign up to our newsletter to get the latest updates.

First and foremost we  want to thank The Seaport Animal Hospital for taking us in for the last few months. It has allowed us to continue to have a place in our neighborhood. There are several companies and vendors that have gone above in beyond in helping us that we want to acknowledge:

Ryan’s Pet

Fab Dog

Bocce’s Bakery

Biscuits by Lambchop

Bowser Beer

Sam & Tasha

Warren London

Earth Rated


Black Dog Farm

Arrf Scarf

Oliver Bentley

**UPDATE 3/22/13**

Much to our disappointment we lost the space we had been hoping to expand into. We are working to move back into our old space but it looks like it won’t happen til May at the earliest. We are discontinuing daycare services once we return to our original space. More updates as to our reopening date once we know more information. We are still working out of the Seaport Animal Hospital on Mon, Thurs, Fri & Sat until further notice.

**UPDATE 11/28/12**

We need YOUR help to rebuild! We are looking for a new temporary space for the next few months until we can move back into Peck Slip. Take a moment to make a pledge to help us rebuild. Please visit Lucky Ant helps The Salty Paw to make your pledge.  You will receive a gift certificate to use at our pop-up shop or our new temporary home.
